Enjoy a picnic at Packwood
There’s no better way to celebrate the start of British summertime than putting together a well-packed picnic and catching up with friends and family. With beautiful herbaceous borders, towering yew trees and wildflower meadows Packwood has lots of picturesque spots to enjoy an al-fresco lunch in the sunshine. Here are some of our perfect picnic spots.
The tennis lawn
One of our favourite spots to enjoy a picnic is on the tennis lawn at Packwood. Surrounded by views of the house, the lake and Packwood’s famous yew garden this makes an ideal spot to while away a few careless hours in the sun. There is a selection of traditional games to keep the little ones busy too!
Picnic area in the barnyard
This is the perfect spot if you need to pick up a chilled drink or ice cream from the café to go with your picnic. Nestled beneath the trees there’s lots of shade to keep you cool on a warm day and don’t forget to pop into the Kitchen Garden to see the fresh produce, summer flowers and take a look at the teddy bears picnic.
Picnic benches by the car park
This picnic area is the perfect spot to look out over the Warwickshire countryside and watch the lambs playing in the field. Enjoy this spot with your two-legged as well as four-legged friends and pick up a walks card from Visitor Reception to enjoy a walk around the estate.
